BOROUGH PRESIDENT KATZ ON GOVERNOR CUOMO’S LAUNCH OF THE COMMON CORE TASK FORCE

Posted · Add Comment

QUEENS, NY – Borough President Melinda Katz stated the following in response to questions about Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s launch of the Common Core Task Force:

“In New York and across the country, Common Core has been more of a common problem. Many parents — certainly from every neighborhood in Queens — agree that we need standards.  That is not the issue.  As a parent who does homework with my second grader every day, the curriculum and implementation are clearly flawed. I am pleased the Governor is addressing the concerns of parents and is committed to swift and comprehensive reforms.”
